Drivers Charged In Mass Pike Road Rage Video Due In Court

Attorney Joseph Comenzo spoke outside the courtroom to media about his client Richard Kamrowski

Police say Kamrowski, 65, jumped on the hood of Fitzgerald's vehicle after the two motorists were involved in a minor sideswipe accident on the westbound side of Interstate 90 near Interstate 95 in Weston.

According to local media reports, after both drivers pulled over, their verbal confrontation quickly escalated, with Kamrowski nabbing a water bottle from Fitzgerald's vehicle and jumping in front of the auto to prevent the driver from speeding away. That's when Kamrowski jumped on the hood of Fitzgerald's SUV.

Following the incident, Kamrowski told reporters he was only trying to get Fitzgerald to stay at the scene when he began to drive away. "He kept going fast, slow, fast, slow, to get me to slide off". The man with the gun reportedly had a license to carry and was not charged.

"I just kept telling him to stop the vehicle, stop the auto, and he wouldn't stop", Kamrowski told reporters on Friday after leaving the State Police barracks.

The road rage confrontation ultimately ended after another driver on Mass Pike was able to get Fitzgerald to pull his auto over.

Massachusetts State Police arrested both Fitzgerald and Kamrowski, WFXT reported.

"We're confident that as the facts are revealed and the witnesses and more footage come forward, it will be clear that Mr. Kamrowski was standing in front of the auto, had not done anything aggressive", Comenzo said.

Kamrowski says it all started after Fitzgerald swerved into his lane and bumped his vehicle. "I just kept telling him, 'Stop the auto, stop the vehicle, ' and he wouldn't stop". Several witnesses captured video of Kamrowski on the hood as the SUV drove by. Fitzgerald can also be heard in the video telling Kamrowski to "get off my vehicle". The man with the gun and another driver kept Fitzgerald there until troopers arrived. Fitzgerald has been charged with assault with a risky weapon.

Kamrowski was charged with malicious damage to a motor vehicle after he smashed Fitzgerald's windshield with a water bottle. He is not facing any charges.
